If I was to stand in a General Election
Would you tell me about your close inspection
And how I never stood for detection
Or would you take another man?

If I told you I had the solution to starvation
All the nations could be their own salvation
And those that lead us, lead us not into temptation
Or they pick another man?

(Sweetheart)
It's affecting
(Sweetheart)
It's so effective
(Sweetheart)
Do you detect in me?
(Sweetheart)
Sacred sweetheart

If I told you about my plan would you believe me?
This is my body, my blood, would you receive me?
Or would you be the first to deceive me
And take another man?

If I told you that I'm not the man to worry
Would you believe me when I said I was really sorry?
Or would you rush off in a hurry
To take another man?

(Sweetheart)
Disconnect from me
(Sweetheart)
You've got no respect for me
(Sweetheart)
It's affecting me
(Sweetheart)
My sacred sweetheart

And when you're troubled and when you're ill
You know I'll help, I always will
And when you're troubled and really down
You know I'll always be around
And when you're troubled and really broke
There's hope, there's hope, there's hope

(Sweetheart)
It's affecting me
(Sweetheart)
You've got no respect for me
(Sweetheart)
It's so effective
(Sweetheart)
My sacred sweetheart

(Sweetheart)
Disconnect
(Sweetheart)
It's so effective
(Sweetheart)
It's affecting me
(Sweetheart)
My sacred sweetheart
